    It is actually the opposite:
    Tapped Voltage- Select Tap and adjust wire speed- so there is really only the wire speed to fiddle with.

    Continuous Voltage Select a "Spot" anywhere in the Range and select a wire speed- now you have to fiddle with where the Voltage needs to be AND where the Wire Speed needs to be.


    To prove my Point is the addition of the Auto Set to the MM140 MM180 MM211.

    Yes and No
    Yes...
    A 240v machine is by far a greater value- twice the tool for about a 1/3rd more in $
    MM140=680.00 120v only
    MM180=805.00 240v only
    MM211= 970.00 but does have dual Voltage 120v & 240v a bonus

    No... if ya don't have the money ya don't have the money

    The Hobart Handlers are proven solid machines but the same rule applies-
    HH140=479.00 120v only
    HH187=669.00 240v only
    HH210=829.00 240v only

    So if you can go with a 240v machine more bang fer yer $$

    Northern has the HH210 WITH Spool Gun for 879.00 free shipping !!!!!

    Too,
    The Autoset feature on the Miller 140AS has been mentioned but not explained. Especially if you are new to welding, the Autoset makes it easy to get started, making pretty good welds right away. The welder comes with a metal gauge. You measure the thickness of the steel you want to weld, set the dial to that thickness, and start welding. On the MM140 the autoset is for .023 and .030 wire. If you go with the Miller 211AS, it works with .030 and .035 wire.

    I had a MM140AS for about 2 years. I sold it (very quickly) for close to what I had in it and bought a MM211AS. Like Jack said, I may not be welding 1/2" steel, but I like having the 220v option. Basically, you can think of the MM211AS as a MM140AS plus a MM180AS. The multi-voltage option gives you the power and the flexibility you may need in the future. If money is not a problem, look at the MM211AS. Plus it is spoolgun ready.

    If you are still deciding between the HH140 and the MM140AS, I think it is worth the money to get the Miller. I think any of these welders will do a great job and you will soon be welding.
